Paris in the sum­mer

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

ST HILDA’s Year 12 stu­dent Ce­leste Kal­ne­nas will travel to Paris next year af­ter win­ning the WA Al­liance Française com­pe­ti­tion.

The prize in­cludes a re­turn trip to Paris, where she can put her French skills to prac­tise.

Ce­leste was part of a group of years 10, 11 and 12 stu­dents who took the Al­liance Française exam.

She said she had been study­ing the lan­guage for more than half her life.

“It’s very good prepa­ra­tion for the WACE exam and you should take ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to lis­ten to French,” she said. “With my prize I’ll be able to go to Paris in the sum­mer­time in June next year. I imag­ine it will look very beau­ti­ful.”

St Hilda’s French teacher Madame Jane Putigny con­grat­u­lated all the stu­dents on their achieve­ments.

“To come so far in a com­pe­ti­tion that in­volved so many stu­dents across the State is an in­cred­i­ble ac­com­plish­ment and a tes­ta­ment to the en­thu­si­as­tic en­gage­ment of our stu­dents with the St Hilda’s French pro­gram.”

St Hilda’s stu­dent Ce­leste Kal­ne­nas is Paris-bound.
